I’m sitting here this afternoon, sipping on a big mug of coffee gearing up for the weekend.  We are headed out for our first, and probably only college campus visit.  Someone pinch me and tell me that our baby is NOT old enough to be looking at colleges yet, and she’s certainly not going to move away from home in a year and a half!   I think I blinked and she grew up.  She grew up into everything I ever imagined she would be and then some!  We are very lucky parents of two such amazing girls!  Whatever you’re up to this weekend I hope it’s fabulous! 

For this week’s I’m Lovin’ It, I thought I’d share a little collection of things I’ve been crushing on lately.

 Favorite Things at TidyMom.net

1.  This Antique cart needs to appear in my life.  Including everything on it.

2.  Mint, it’s kind of the coolest color EVER! and it’s my new favorite.  My mom even picked up on my latest fascination and got me a fabulous mint necklace  for my birthday.  I wear it every chance I get.

3.  Colored jeans, like pink and mint.

4.  I’m loving this office makeover .  I’m jealous of the placement of the desk in front of the window. I would love to work with a view.

5.  Go watch Joy’s Hot Fudge Milk Shake video and tell me you don’t want one! – I dare you.

6.  This reclaimed lumber “EAT” wall art in the kitchen is perfection!

7.  I love when I find a new dinner recipe that’s a hit with the family! Italian Turkey and cheese sandwiches on garlic toasted buns – try them!

8.  I fell in love with this duvet while shopping at Pottery Barn the other day at the mall.  I’m not looking for a new one, but that one is REALLY calling my name.

9.  Melissa’s kitchen remodel was 9 months in the making and oh my word….it was worth the wait!! – Almost as adorable as Jack the Goldendoodle

10. We have a Lavender Farm near us that I haven’t been to in a few years.  I’m planning to go in the next few months, and I think I will need to make Lavender Lemonade after I go!

11. You need this powder and this brush in your life!

13. My husband does not like to travel, but I’m desperately trying to talk him into Hawaii in the next year or so, since we will be celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary and my 50th birthday in about 2 years.  But for now,  I just sip on Tully’s Hawaiian blend coffee and let my thoughts take me away.  It’s a clean tasting coffee that’s slightly sweet and not at all bitter, a mug full with a splash of coconut milk and these might just be my new favorite K-cup packs!
